This is a nice looking restaurant, first time I've been (business lunch). The waitress was quick and friendly, offering refills on drinks as soon as anyone was close to done. The food was quick, I was just disappointed with the shrimp brushetta. Not sure if they made it first then let it sit while getting rest of food ready, it... More

Stopped here for dinner with grandchildren. Lasagna special, really good. Bread was warm and delicious. Service was good and attentive without hovering.

This place is close to the house with really good food. The weekday specials are just a bonus when you see you bill at the end of a visit.

Our server was very knowledgeable. I had the eggplant parmigiana with spaghetti and it was the best I have ever eaten. Thick slices of Italian bread were delicious as well.

Started out with the Shrimp Bruschetta which was amazing, small house salad, which was not small and fresh bread. Pizza sub and cheese steak calzone, both were delicious and sizes were large.. Finished with the sinful fried dough balls! Staff was friendly and resturant clean and bright. A must visit for anyone looking for a great meal, friendly service at... More

I had given this place rave reviews just a couple of years ago but since they changed ownership I have had some bad experiences. A few months ago I ordered the Caesar salad which had always been good in the past. This time the romaine was dark and tough and the dressing did not have it's usual fres taste. I... More

Won't be confused with a fine dinning experience on atmosphere alone,but, the food portions are generous and have great taste.You must try the fried calamara with the homemade bread. All appetizers are half -priced on Thursdays.Service is usually above average,but BYOB. Great place to dine early before a movie or trip to the Mall.

We visited BDIR for the first time this evening. It is a nice, casual place. We started with the calamari which was the best fried calamari we have had in a while. It was lightly battered and cooked perfectly. It was very tender and nicely seasoned. The salad wasn't anything special and the blue cheese dressing was prepackaged "Ken's" dressing.... More
